The Newton Holiday parade has been being held for over 50 years and has participants from all over our county. The parade begins promptly at 10:00 AM. The theme for this year’s parade will be children’s “Dreams & Fantasies”. Participants can use their pure imagination to bring your floats/groups to life.
Awards will be given for the floats and/or group who best depict their imagination. Please be advised that floats and groups that wish to be judged must be in place by 8:30 AM. Judging will begin promptly at 8:30 AM. All floats will enter Lower Spring Street via Diller Ave. Judging will take place before the parade so that as participants reach the reviewing stand we can announce the winners.
All other marchers should arrive between 8:30 and 9:30 AM at the Lower Spring Street staging area. Lower Spring Street will be open for you to drop marchers off, but you will not be allowed to park vehicles there. Be advised that the staging area will be blocked off to all vehicular traffic.
Further information about where you can park will be sent after you have registered to march in the parade.
Musical groups, floats, animals and vehicles such as antique cars are welcome to participate. If you are interested in building a float there are several supply and informational sites available on the web.
